Bluestones Group has launched its first joint venture in Northern Ireland, a specialist recruitment and training provider operating from headquarters in Belfast.
Bluestones Staffing NI launched this month and will provide temporary and permanent personnel to the logistics, retail and manufacturing industry, as well as providing unique training solutions to companies throughout Ireland.
Debbie McDermott, Bluestones Staffing NI Director, launched the business with the support of the Bluestones Group after gaining over 35 years’ expertise in the industry.
As well as providing the investment and aid to launch the new business, Bluestones Group will continue to support Bluestones Staffing NI with its extensive range of services which include marketing, finance, HR, IT and admin.
Debbie McDermott said, “I recognised a need for a company which specialises in both training and recruitment. We want to help the unemployed gain the confidence and skills needed to help them back into employment, and help businesses, small and large, upskill their existing workforce.”
“With the backing of the Bluestones Group, we have been able to realise our dream of launching a company that supplies the needs of job seekers and employers in Ireland. With the Group’s continued support, we will be able to dedicate our time to providing the best service possible to our clients, whether that’s providing tailored training solutions to upskill their workforce or supplying them with permanent or temporary staff – no matter if they are a small local business or a national blue-chip company.”
Marian Butterworth, Bluestones Group’s Logistics and Retail divisional CEO, said, “Bluestones Staffing NI is a unique company and we’re ecstatic to have them on board. Debbie and Kieran are experts in their sector and passionate about what they do, it is exactly this passion and knowledge that we look for in the people we invest in.”
“We’re very excited to be working with Debbie. Bluestones Staffing NI complements and will strengthen our already successful Logistics and Retail division.”
Bluestones Staffing NI officially launched on 5th February and is now open for business.
